Hello fellow Greek-lovers!
Maybe I'm posting this in the wrong place (in which case you must excuse me as a newbie) but I was just wondering if any of you have a copy of Geoffrey Horrocks: Greek. A History of the Language and its Speakers? I'm supposed to purchase it for the coming semester but it seems that it's more expensive than I imagined...
